Betty shows Don the contents of his "Secret Drawer" and asks questions. After a stiff drink, Don provides the answers, and tells the truth, mostly. At the office, Roger meets an old flame but remains true to his child bride, and then helps Joan out with a new job. Finally, Dr. Butterfingers joins the army and the schoolteacher cries when Don ends their affair.

- Hendricks looked really hot this episode
- Don leaving the schoolteacher in the caddy - then forgetting her
- Betty takes the baby trick or treating - give me a break. They're wealthy by the standards of 1962. they couldn't get Carla to stay late?
The lawyer seem mistaken in so many ways. First, it'd be easy for Betty to prove adultery, secondly in the 60s the wife always got the kids, third, Betty would have gotten a good alimony settlement. Why the writers had the lawyer lie is puzzling.
Both Roger and his old girlfriend need to watch Casablanca again - Ingrid didn't get on a plane with anyone.
Most excellent. The best episode this far and will probably will earn Hamm an Emmy nomination. The show is always at its best when it focuses in on Don. Where does the show go from here? I have no idea - and that's great. **** stars.
